The Horned Frogs (47-17) fell to the losers side of the bracket after going down 3-0 to third seed Florida in their College World Series opener on Sunday and must win today if they are going to stay in this year's NCAA Tournament. The Aggies end their season at 41-23.

Brian Howard (12-3) earned the win for TCU. "And Big Game Howie, as he's affectionately known in Fort Worth, showed up today".

The game matched teams located 175 miles apart and rivals since their days in the old Southwest Conference.

The starting pitcher allowed just one run and five hits in seven innings, adding 12 strikeouts and zero walks.

The College World Series are thoroughly underway in Omaha, and the group of eight's second team has been eliminated. He retired nine straight in one stretch before allowing consecutive hits in the sixth.

"I think Sam's been the X factor, a little under the radar", McDonnell said. Second base umpire Heath Jones seems duly unimpressed... while also wondering why the hell I'm taking this picture. I just want to execute pitches down at the bottom of the strike zone and use my frame to get weak contact.

"Don't get me wrong, the Milan crowds were great - but it was definitely a big atmosphere and crowd", Wolf said. "And from that point on, you have to be prefect to have a chance to beat McKay and to beat at team like Louisville". "That's the best way to hit his breaking ball". "He was fabulous on the mound and we didn't have a whole lot of opportunities". We fouled a lot of fastballs off. But you know it was just exciting.

"(We) knew Texas A&M was not going to fold", Cardinals coach Dan McDonnell said.

"It was a little bit of a freakish game", Mainieri said.

"I felt like we didn't chase the scoreboard", Bedford said. "I think we kind of got away from our approach early on". He walked the next batter to load the bases, then yielded a groundout at second on his 101st pitch.

The Frogs padded their lead in the third.

This version corrects when Ryan Merrill was drafted.

McKay worked 5.0 innings, plus three batters in the sixth inning for the Cardinals.

And his head coach was thrilled as well.

"Very happy with my season so far", Wolf said.

"The guys believed an bad lot", Childress told those gathered in Omaha on Friday. I feel like he's here with us.

But now the Aggies are in the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska, for the sixth time in program history.

Howard was excited about his roommate's home run. "But immediately when it was hit, I jumped up onto the top rail and started going nuts". "He's been here since he was a kid and to see him do that was really special".

The Beavers own the nation's longest win streak this season with the 23-gamer they had from late February to mid-April. After loading the bases with one out, Taylor drove Lyman home with a RBI fielder's choice to Aggies second baseman Braden Shewmake, whose throw to second for an attempted force out pulled shortstop Austin Homan off the base and kept the bases loaded.

Howard, who normally keeps to himself in the dugout on days he's pitching, said he went nuts when he saw the ball leave the yard.
